This spring, Richard Crossley is releasing a really interesting new bird guide, based on photoshopping multiple images of the same species into one meta-image. The result will be a plate that shows how the bird looks in different settings (in flight, perched, large flocks, etc). In anticipation of the release, Princeton University Press has been posting a couple short videos he has been making about birding. Enjoy!
